You may be infected with the poebot-j worm. Suggest you install Ewido and do a scan in safe mode.

also suggest you post a Hijack This Log using these instructions:

What firewall are you using?

Also-
What browser? Internet Explorer?

If it is IE, click on "Tools" and empty your temp files and cookies.
Place the MS pages in your "trusted" zone.

Have you installed any kind of ap that affects your hosts file?

Have you, by chance, blocked cookies from MSN? This'll cause havoc with any Microsoft related pages.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

MS pages seem to work a lot better if you use Internet Explorer.

If any of the pages you are trying to use require Active X (as Windows and MS Updates do), Firefox will not work because it doesn't use Active X.

In Firefox, click "tools" / "options" / advanced and click the "security" tab
Make sure all three protocols have check marks
In "View certificates" under "websites"
Make sure oms.one.microsoft.com is listed

Actually, there was an update for Firefox today.
Did you update Firefox?
